What to expect

After being picked up from your hotel you'll leave the center of Rome and drive north with your private English-speaking driver, through the beautiful landscape of Lazio and Umbria. After about an hour’s drive, you'll stop at the picturesque town of Orvieto. Here, your guide will walk you through the highlights of this tiny Italian gem. They'll tell you all you need to know about the historic, religious and artistic significance of the beautiful frescoes inside the cathedral of Orvieto.

Orvieto sits dramatically on a volcanic plateau, high above the Umbrian countryside which surrounds the whole town. Its rich history began with the Etruscans and today it's famous thanks to its high-quality truffles, the incredible Gothic cathedral with a frescoed Last Judgement, a labyrinth of ancient underground tunnels and a fine art gallery.

When your experience in Orvieto is over, you'll drive for another hour through the old medieval town of Chianciano in Tuscany and onward to the historical center of Montepulciano. You'll be given some time to explore the cobblestoned streets on your own and to admire the noble residences, medieval churches and fortifications. You can visit the courtyard and Palazzo Ricci, the work of the architect Baldassare Peruzzi.

The wine tasting experience is held inside an ancient cellar, one of the most beautiful in the world. You'll taste four different world-renowned wines including the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano while also sampling the region’s artisan salamis and cheeses. You'll have the opportunity to buy wines and olive oils directly from the producer and ship them anywhere in the world, skipping all intermediaries.

The drive back to Rome is about two and a half hours where you will be dropped off at your hotel after this unforgettable day trip in Umbria and Tuscany.
